Mr Keane, of Blackhorse Grove, Blackhorse Avenue, Dublin 7, succeeded in the hit-and-run damages claim he brought against an uninsured driver and the Motor Insurers' Bureau of Ireland following an accident at Arran Court, Smithfield, Dublin, in which he was hit by a car.
Mr Keane told the court he was walking on February 12, 2014, when a car collided with him.
The driver stopped, reversed and said: "I have no insurance. I have to get out of here."

Judge Mary O'Malley Costello dismissed two separate €60,000 personal injury damages claims by Mr Keane, who will be 35 on December 29, after she was told that he was withdrawing both of them following talks and a private viewing of proposed video evidence.
In the two withdrawn claims, Mr Keane sued P&N Oil Limited, which owned a Maxol filling station at Constitution Hill, Dublin 7, on which he alleged he had slipped, and Shafahat Ali, of Allen Terrace, Phibsborough, Dublin, in relation to a car accident in July 2014.
